Just like that, it’s over. Another season of Game of Thrones is in the past with only six more episodes to look forward to in about 40 years.  We talked about the finale and we also power rank all seven of the season finales of Game of Thrones.  Incest, Bran, Little Finger, how do we want Game of Thrones to end? You can find it all here!

We are here today to point out the differences between the Razzball Rankings (which finished Top-3 in 2016) and those that ESPN has released to the masses. Haha, just kidding. You know, it used to be that Matthew Berry, Tristan Cockraft (lovely human being, totally serious. Met him at the LABR party down in Arizona Spring Training, probably one of the nicest guys in the industry along with Eno Sarris), and Eric Karabell submitted their rankings for the Accuracy Challenge that our friends over at FantasyPros host… After both Berry finishing in the lower 80’s back in 2015 and then Karabell finishing in the same area-ish (“ish” because I can’t remember exactly ) last season, they have yet to be seen this season putting their rankings to the test. So while I used to be able to compare our rankings to what the “industry” had made “standard” (parenthesis for sarcasm I suppose), the first thing you’ll notice with our yearly “Rankings Versus” series is that there won’t be any Matthew Berry. Whether that’s ultimately a good or bad thing, I’ll let you decide. Because, hey, I’m just that kind of guy. But don’t worry! Instead, we’ll be taking a look at how our “industry” leading rankings stack against the ECR (Expert Consensus Rankings), and last season’s top “Accuracy Expert” (no sarcasm), Dalton Del Don from Yahoo! (do I have to yell it every time? Geez, that gets old real fast…) Sports, not to be confused with “Yoohoo! Sports”, which I do all the time. Then again, I usually confuse most things with chocolate drinks. Totally normal.

So be sure to check out our 2017 Fantasy Football Rankings, Auction Values, and our very own Cheat Sheet for any context you may need. I’d say that context needs more chocolate drink to be honest…

Hello everyone! We are back with another RazzBlitz episode with a very special guest! We have on Josh Sperry (you can follow him on Twitter here) from Fox 5 Atlanta, 680 The Fan, and Fantistics Fantasy Sports! We talk about a wide range of topics, from previewing the 2017 Atlanta Falcons, to recapping the injuries of the preseason, to talking about draft risers and fallers from the offseason, to late round QB’s we have fallen in love with, and even discussing Miko Grimes! It’s an episode you surely can’t miss, even if it’s without our fearless leader Matt Bowe, who was truly missed. That’s a lot of the uses of the word “miss” folks. Enjoy!

If we were all born geniuses we wouldn’t be drafting until this weekend for leagues that we pay into. Most of us are terribly impatient fantasy football players and for whatever reason need an extra week or two to stare at rosters that we can’t do anything with while top end wide receivers and running backs tear their ACLs making awkward cuts.  Julian Edelman, Spencer Ware, and Cameron Meredith are all players going anywhere from the early to middle rounds that have had their seasons ended before they even started and thousands of people have these players on their rosters because WE MUST DRAFT IN AUGUST BECAUSE AUGUST IS DRAFT MONTH.  MY FANTASY BASEBALL TEAM SUCKS AND I NEED A ROSTER TO LOOK FORWARD TO. Yeah, I’m the exact same way.  Whether it is due to an injury on the roster, a good preseason, or a player is just being overlooked, here are some players that are worth your picks and also some that aren’t worth your time based on recent changes in August.

The best thing about still being involved in fantasy baseball is that it means I am in the playoffs. While I am in many leagues, there are three which I consider the important leagues. I define “important” to mean there is a reasonable buy-in accompanied with it and an even more reasonable first place prize. Unsurprisingly, if you read my baseball posts, all three of these leagues are points leagues. Currently I am in the World Series in two of them, and the semi-finals of the third. Pulling off a three league win would be pretty sweet, but I’ve still got a long way to go.

The worst thing about still being involved in fantasy baseball is that it means my fantasy football research has been severely hindered and delayed. While I refuse to play in a pay league where the draft occurs more than a week before the regular season starts, this still gives me little time to prepare. And perhaps even worse, it reduces that amount of pre-draft advice I can attempt to sling your way. Not that many of you give a sh*t what I have to say, but I do have a handful of readers that have at least some interest in my posts.

This is Part Deux of Predicting the Top 10 for 2017. For the running back series, click here.

My primary motivation for the running back piece was due to the proliferation of the “Zero RB” drafting strategy. The basic premise of this strategy is that running backs are too risky due to injury and usage (RBBC). Was there a way to mitigate the risk or identify trends from history that could assist with choosing the right running back?

The “Zero RB” strategy advocates drafting wide receivers. “The wide receiver gets more projected points when you adjust projections for risk.” If that’s the case, then ADP for wide receivers should be able to predict the final top 10 at a much higher rate than for running backs, right?

Going back 12 years, though, that just hasn’t been the case. Here’s a look of the percentage of top 10 ADP WRs that finished the season in the top 10, per season.

What’s going on everybody?! Recently, we held the Annual Razzball Writer’s League draft! Well the night was great and we all had lots of fun, but now it is time to recap the event, with each writer (or as many that would respond to my emails) giving his and her analysis on their team, and how the night went. All of the analysis is below, so happy reading! And after you read said analysis, make sure to join in on the fun, as there are some RCL Leagues still open!

IDP is becoming a big part of what we do at Razzball, especially in our new RCL IDP leagues.  Background knowledge of players to draft can set you apart and become a deciding factor in weekly wins and losses.  I’ve already written a general strategy piece about how and when to draft IDP spots.  Also the article emphasized recognizing how your league scores your IDP scoring, that is the most important part of all.  But, we haven’t really expressed what individual players to target.  If your IDP spots aren’t position specific, I’ll give you a few linebacker names that I really like.  If your IDP leagues are position specific, we will dive into a few defensive line and defensive back names as well.

We feel we are the best in-season fantasy baseball subscription service for both season-long and DFS. It is possible that our ethos of ‘We give advice for free, avoid massive cost outlays for fancy software, and ensure our collective investment (our time, your money) goes towards creating/maintaining the best projections and powerful but simple tools’ is not for everyone. So be it.

Getting to where we are in MLB was not easy, it did not happen overnight, and it never would have happened without the feedback and support of everyone at Razzball Nation (I know that sounds like standard BS but loyal readers know Streamonator was a commenter idea – I just executed and iterated on it.).

It was about 15 months ago that Grey and I decided to invest in building the best fantasy football subscription service. We knew it would be a massive learning curve and that there are some great, established players in this space. While I imagine we will be even better 12 months from now than we are today, I highly suggest jumping on board for 2017 because things are looking really good and we need the support to justify continued investment.
